The potential of cooperative communications to speed up disaster relief operations

Abstract : This paper proposes FLY-COPE, a complete self-organization architecture that relies on cooperative communications and drone-assisted data collection, allowing a fast location of victims and rescuing operation organization in disaster relief operation. FLY-COPE mainly combines two components: i) a ground component that spontaneously emerges from any communicating devices (piece of infrastructure, mobile phone, etc) that cooperate to alert rescuers and remain all alive as long as possible and ii) an aerial component comprising UAV to communicate efficiently with ground devices. We show by simulation and/or by experimentation that each component of FLY-COPE allows substantial energy saving for efficient and fast disaster response.
